Week 14 in Review



The new eZ Community Board 2017/2018

Last week the new eZ Community Board was introduced. After a successful renewal process the Community Board is looking forward to its 2017/2018 term. We will continue our focus on improving our community platform, the ongoing transition to eZ Platform and other topics.

The governance guidelines provide the board with a flexible member composition, meaning we can invite non-permanent members to meetings to discuss specific topics. To facilitate this, we will announce agenda/topics in advance of meetings.

The eZ Community Board represents you, the eZ community. You are invited to contact one or more of those who represent you, or to contact the entire board, to share your views, needs, and questions.

eZ Platform 1.9.0 beta2

eZ Platform 1.9.0 beta2 was released this week. It includes updated packages such as PlatformUIBundle 1.9.0 beta1 and miscellaneous improvements/fixes. More details are available on GitHub.
